Ancient female skeleton found in Rome

Archaeologists said Tuesday they have dug up a woman skeleton dating to the 10th century B.C. in an ancient necropolis in the heart of Rome. The well-preserved skeleton appears to be that of a woman aged about 30, said Anna De Santis, one of the archaeologists who took part in the excavations under the Caesar’s Forum, part of the sprawling complex of the Imperial Forums in central Rome. An amber necklace and four pins were also found near the 5.25 foot-long skeleton, she said. The bones, dug up Monday, would likely be put on display in a museum after being examined further, De Santis said. It was the first skeleton to be found in the 3,000-year-old necropolis, she said. Early this year, a funerary urn that contained human ashes, as well as bone fragments that appeared to be from a sheep, were found in one of the necropolis’ tombs.
